The first leg of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes action for three-year-old trotters closed out the week of racing at Harrington Raceway with five $20,000 divisions on Wednesday (June 16).

The fastest winner was Bobby Myers' Big Al M ($2.80, Eddie Davis Jr.), who continued his dominance of DSBF rivals with a front-stepping 1:58.4 triumph over Bluestone Jackson and Vlahos. The Eric Davis trainee never had an anxious moment in his wire-to-wire win, the seventh in nine career starts for the son of Anders Bluestone who has banked $150,892 lifetime.

The first filly division saw KJ Diamond (Victor Kirby) overtake pacesetter Blue Green Machine at the top of the stretch and draw clear for a one-length win in 2:03.4. Shes So Striking finished third. A daughter of Keystone Activator racing for owners Pam Wagner and Scott Woogen and trainer Victor Kirby, K J Diamond notched her second lifetime win.

Gary White's Whitesville Beulah ($6.40, David Hill III) won the second division in 2:00.3 with a front end win over Kims Command and Designers Edge. The Anders Bluestone filly notched her third career win for owner/trainer White.

In the final colt and gelding division, Someofmygoodtime ($44.20, Bill Long) sprung an upset in 2:02.2 over Fox Briar Spooky and Command The Market. The Harry Marsh Jr.-trained son of Keystone Activator took advantage of an early miscue by 1-5 favourite Altar Call, who broke behind the starting gate, and led all the way for his first lifetime win for owners Janet Rae, Joseph Kansak and trainer Marsh.

The final filly division on the card went to 1-9 favourite Jazzy Judy ($2.10, Anthony MacDonald), who was an open-length winner in 2:01 over Azurine and Annalee. Owned by Thestable Jazzy Judy Group and trained by Jim King Jr., the Political Briefing filly assumed command near the top of the stretch from Annalee and drew away effortlessly for her fourth lifetime win.

In the $17,000 overnight feature, Nick Callahan trainee Ginger Tree Skyr ($3.20, Corey Callahan) recorded his second straight win in 1:55.3 for owners Callahan, Yonwollan Racing Team, Stuart Chambers and Gregory Godbout. It was one of four wins on the card for driver Callahan, and one of two for horses trained by his father.

Jason Johnson had a training triple.

The second leg of DSBF action will be contested June 21-23. Post time is 4:30 p.m. nightly.
